7:05 am
early as people are going to the boston marathon, remember, half a million people descend on boston to watch, 30,000 runners, a wet start. you can see how windy it was when that line of strong storms blew through. now that line is moving off into the ocean. that low pressure system will bring windy conditions behind it but much greater than windy will be the next big severe storm threat. remember, we show you these because they end up happening like they did over the weekend with nearly 500 severe storm reports. dallas and wichita false in there. guys? >> ginger, thank you very much. to the white house now, and the president's push to bus migrants to sanctuary cities governed by democrats. people inside the administration rejected the idea as costly and impractical and illegal. i asked press secretary sarah sanders why the president continues to push the proposal. >> look, we have -- that was brought up at a staff level. it was determined at that time that logistically there were a
7:06 am
lot of challenges and it probably didn't make sense to move forward and the idea didn't go further. >> not just logistically, legally. >> the president likes it. we're looking to see if there are options that make it possible, and doing it in a full and thorough and extensive review. >> let's bring in senior white house correspondent cecelia vega. cecilia, at another point, she said it's not the president's plan. how seriously are they taking this? >> reporter: george, if it's any indication of where the president's head is this morning, his very first tweet out this morning is to send marketing advice to boeing. sarah sanders told you yesterday that sending undocumented immigrants to sanctuary cities wouldn't be their first choice. we know that behind the scenes immigration officials have been contradicting the administration on this one saying adamantly there is not a plan in place to enforce this idea. it's not one they're taking seriously up. you mentioned, george, that democrats say this is dead on arrival, and they're suggesting they might want stephen miller, the architect of many of these controversial immigration

7:08 am
good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, robin. overnight, the freshman congresswoman says she has seen an increase in direct threats on her life after president trump tweeted a video mixing footage of the congresswoman who is muslim giving a recent speech with footage of the 9/11 attack. in a statement, omar says, quote, violent rhetoric and all forms of hate speech have no place in our society, much less from our country's commander-in-chi commander-in-chief. this morning house speaker nancy pelosi is stepping up security for the congresswoman and urging the president to take down this video which she calls dangerous and disrespectful. democrats say that omar's recent comment that, quote, some people did something on 9/11 is being taken out of context. they say she was discussing discrimination against muslim americans. but, george, the president and the white house are saying they wish no ill will and certainly not violence against the congresswoman. george? >> a lot of questions about that. mary bruce, that very much. in the race for the white house, pete buttigieg, the mayor

7:13 am
friends reportedly on a mission to share photos from the top of the tower. >> it's going to be top of the bell tower, female fell from a high location. neck and head injuries at the top of the bell tower at fordham university. >> reporter: police say senior sydney monfries died sunday after suffering life-threatening injuries after falling nearly 40 feet reportedly in a hole in the stairs to the top. in an email to students, the university president confirming the death of the 22-year-old avid traveler who showcased her global excursions across her instagram page. >> i really feel for the family. that's just very sad, you know, just a tragic incident. >> i'm sure she was friendly and kind. just the fact that so many people know her is a testament to that. >> reporter: officials say the building and tower are locked at night and they're investigating how those students managed to get inside.
7:14 am
as for monfrese who was set to graduate next month, leaders say she will still receive her degree post humously. >> thank you so much. now to that close call overnight. a small plane going down outside a home in long island just narrowly missing the ground, getting caught in the power lines. miraculously, no one was seriously injured and abc's gio benitez is there with the story. good morning, gio. >> reporter: michael, good morning. an incredible story. i'll step out of the way here because it's not every day that you see a plane in somebody's front lawn, and again, that amazing headline, everyone survived this crash. >> they're literally okay. they walked out of a plane that completely crashed. >> reporter: the images are stunning. a single engine cessna airplane strung up in wires, caught up in wires just a few feet from the ground. >> we lost contact with the aircraft two to three miles northeast of the kennedy airport. >> reporter: the plane carrying
7:15 am
two korean tourists had reportedly run out of gas after a flight to niagara falls and several aborted landings at republic airport. it was redirected to jfk airport. >> as they came around, they ran out of fuel. the wires prevented the plane from actually striking the ground and it hung it up about one foot from hitting the ground. >> reporter: a miraculous ending of the flight. the only injury, a sprained finger on one of the passengers. and in this case, perhaps it's a good thing that they ran out of gas because that may be what prevented a fire from starting and allowed all these people to walk away safely. robin? >> could be, gio. glad everybody'skay. thank you. can we talk about tiger woods? >> yeah. >> waking up a masters champion again this morning. his comeback epic, winning his first major tournament since 2008. t.j., this was just incredible. >> just special. augusta national is where the tiger legend began. he was a 21-year-old skinny kid when he became the first person of color and the youngest to win the masters. history came in rapid succession

7:17 am
something i'll never, ever forget. >> reporter: tiger in his signature sunday red started the day two shots behind the leaders, but gave us vintage tiger down the stretch. >> i'm compelled to say, oh, my goodness. >> reporter: the epic victory is one many, including tiger, thought never would happen after a series of personal and professional setbacks including a dui arrest and a cheating scandal that led to a very public divorce. hampered by surgeries and injuries, at one point his world ranking had fallen out of the top 1,000. >> i had, you know, serious doubts after, you know, what transpired a couple of years ago. i could barely walk. i couldn't sit. i couldn't lay down or do much of anything. >> i don't think things get more special for me. >> the opportunity to come back from this, it's one of the biggest wins i have had for sure. >> now we're back on track with the talk of him catching jack nicklaus at 18.

uber ride. these are the last images of 21-year-old samantha josephson alive. the university of south carolina student seen getting into this black chevy impala, the car she believed was her uber around 2:00 a.m. after a night with friends last month. police say the driver is 25-year-old nathaniel david rowland who is not an uber driver at all, but was allegedly passing by when josephson made the fatal mistake of opening the back door and getting inside. >> the child safety locks were activated on the door that would not allow someone the means to escape. >> reporter: the next afternoon turkey hunters discovered josephson's body in this wooded area about 90 minutes from her columbus campus. investigators used that surveillance footage to track down rowland's car. they found blood and a cell phone inside. rowland remains in jail charged with josephson's kidnapping and murder.

7:35 am
mistakenly thought this was her uber, and -- >> it wasn't even an uber driver. >> it wasn't an uber driver. he was impersonating an uber driver, and one of the things we want to do is -- there are 19 states that do not have front license plates on their car, and south carolina happened to be one of them, so you can't see when the car's pulling up. you can't see the front license plate, so i think -- i'm not saying to change all the states and make it mandatory, but if you are going to be in the ridesharing industry, you should have a front license plate. >> there are so many things that all of us have to do, all of us as parents. the important question you have to ask before you get into the car is, what's my name? >> it has to be automatic like putting on a seat belt. you have to ask, what's my name because it can be anyone, and if the only thing we can do is to help change the way everyone thinks so no one else has to go through this. >> another big thing that can change the ridesharing industry
7:36 am

7:37 am
all this. >> yes. >> and laws have to change. >> we have spoken to our local congressman and they want to do something together with us. >> federally. >> do something federally, and we want to put this together and make sure it passes and it's a bipartisan issue. >> that's fitting in so many ways. i know samantha wanted to go to law school. >> yeah. >> the university of south carolina will be giving you her degree posthumously in may. i know you want to be there for her. >> it will be the hardest thing for us to go, but we need to go. >> she wanted us there. >> she wanted us there, and i had reviewed some of our old text messages and she had said something about us not being able to attend and she said it was all right if we didn't attend and we said, we wouldn't miss it for the world. >> of course, you won't, and you're going to help a lot of people with what you are doing right now. we're sorry again for your loss, and thank you for coming in. >> thank you. >> we'll be right back. and thank you for coming in.

8:19 am
this is the single most infectious virus in the world. about 90% of people who are exposed to it, if they have not been vaccinated, will become infected and sick. let's talk about the vaccine. it is incredibly safe and effective. it's about 97% effective after you get the two doses and 93% after a single dose. you are considered protected lifelong, but it is not perfect. you saw that number was 97%, and not 100%. there is a small percentage of people we call nonresponders and that's what appears to be going on in these very, very rare cases of people becoming sick after they know they have been vaccinated. >> now you have heard these stories. there are some stories circulating that the vaccine wears off, that you may need a booster. is any of that -- >> no. that's really the most important thing about this. we are seeing with this national outbreak, so much myth, misinformation. >> yeah. >> miseducation. it is making people sick. so again, the cdc is all over this. they are saying to people, again, this vaccine does not wear off.
8:20 am
you don't need a booster, but there is also talk of, should i get tested? should i get this blood test to see if i'm protected? the answer is no. number one, that test was designed to see if you have been naturally exposed. that's different than vaccine protection, and it's expensive, and, you know, for the rare people who might get that test result back and it shows no immunity, they're going to be left with saying, what do i do? this really pertains to medical professionals and health care providers who need to make sure they're protected. the key year, 1957, if you were born before that, you are presumed to have been naturally exposed. if you were born after that, the vast majority of people are protected with the vaccine. >> okay. we haven't had to deal with this in a very, very long time. remind people of the severity, especially for children. >> that's right. let's take a history and medical walk down memory lane and realize that this is not just a possibility. we can see this. so take a look at these numbers, robin.

8:26 am
